  1. That's a well-equipped Ollie! I finalized my build back in August. Congrats on finalizing the options. I'm sure you're excited. I know I am.
  2. I've been watching videos from Overland Expo West 2022 that just concluded in Loveland, Colorado. The Expo had on display a lot of interesting gear for off-the-grid camping. One item that caught my interest was the Geyser Shower System. It seems to be a great way to get a hot shower without filling the grey tank or drawing water from the fresh water tank. I was wondering if anyone has experience using it? Apparently it comes in both a 12 volt and a non-electric version. I especially like that it uses a sponge rather than a shower head as a way of conserving water. Playing with sticks did a video review of the non-electric version:
  3. I am interested in meeting there if it's in February of 2023. Thanks!
  4. I discovered the Truma portable refrigerators/freezers at the Quartzsite RV show in January this year. I took advantage of the show special and bought one...the C44. It works well and I recommend it. Truma Cooler Portable Fridges and Freezers
  5. I started out with a Casita 17' Spirit Deluxe. Well-made. Not four seasons and hot in the AZ summer. I sold it for more than I paid for it. I bought another trailer, sold it, and now have an Oliver on order. I'm not sure Olivers are lighter that Airstreams but IMO they are better made and require less maintenance. Happy camping in the Casita...I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
  6. I've had 2 trailers so far...one had a wet bath, the 2nd one a dry bath. The dry bath shower leaked from the bottom and pooled water on the floor, but it was nice that for the most part, the toilet, floor, and sink stayed dry and I could have my towels hung up on a towel bar. Nevertheless, I really have no real preference and would rather have more space in the rest of the trailer.
  7. This blog article has some great suggestions for making a wet bath more enjoyable to use. I especially like the tip on creating towel shelving using tension rods. Can anyone else suggest items or ideas that enhance the wet bath experience? 6 tips for loving your RV wet bath | Outdoorsy.com
  8. I completely agree with @Kirk Petersonabout using Harvest Host/Boondockers Welcome. There are some interesting Harvest Host stops along I-20 in Texas, including the Petroleum Museum and Hangar 25 Air Museum. There are also some Texas state campgrounds along the way. I think Campendium is a great resource for searching for campgrounds.
  9. Easy and delicious. The best combination!
  10. Thank you for doing all of this! It's great information. Now I know the Sumo Springs won't work on an LEII. I originally learned about them from an RV YouTube couple, Wayward Wags, who installed them on their 5th wheel. The couple set up a camera inside the RV both before and after installation to show the difference in the amount of movement and jarring inside while traveling. The Sumo Springs seemed to make a big difference. But, unfortunately, based on your research above, they won't work on the LEII. Thanks again.
  11. Does anyone know if Sumo Springs are compatible with the LEII? If so, has anyone installed them and with what result? Trailer SumoSprings - SuperSpringsĀ® International, Inc. (superspringsinternational.com)
  12. Catalina's a great park. Also, have you tried Gilbert Ray?
  13. Congrats! I pick my LEII up in the middle of winter--January 3rd. But, I'll take the southern route home to AZ and hope Texas doesn't get the ice storm it did in 2020!
  14. I have a small Ninja 7-way cooker. One simple thing I like to do is put a roast in it, pour a can of cream of mushroom soup and a packet of dry onion dip mix onto the roast, and slow cook it on low for 8 hours. So easy and delicious. Set it in the morning, enjoy the day, come back to the camper, and you'll have a yummy roast.
  15. I don't know if you "need" it but I would recommend it. IMO, it's very easy to use and does make towing more stable.
